Subject: Classic!
Wonderful film with Edward G. Robinson and Orson Welles, playing against each other in a cat and mouse game. Kindler (Welles) is a fugitive nazi with blood on his hands, who after WWII tries to hide on the other side of the world, in a small American town. Loretta Young is his pretty American wife, who doesn't know a thing about her husband's past. Great acting, great story, great suspense!

A decent thriller ably acted and directed and topical at the time with a famous climatic scene.
Otherwise,rather lacking in suspenseful moments.
